How Can You Tell if a Well Pump is Bad?

Have you been noticing any changes in your home’s water? It could be because you’re having an issue with your well pump. At Michael Runk Plumbing and Heating, we’ve been providing Marylanders with our well pump repair services for years and wanted to talk about a few different signs your well pump has gone bad.

Lack of Water Flow

Has your water pressure dropped recently? Is there no water coming out of the faucet? If you’re experiencing issues with your water pressure, there are a few things it could be. One of the most common causes is a failure with your well pump. It could be as simple as making an adjustment to your pump’s setting, or you could need a whole pump replacement.

A Constantly Running Pump

You’ve probably tuned it out over time, but if you pay attention, you should be able to hear most well pumps when they’re running. If your well pump is running constantly, there’s something wrong with it. Well pumps should only need to run periodically, and if they’re always running, then that’s an indication of a failure somewhere within the system.

Regular Inspection and Maintenance Will Extend Your Pump’s Life

Just like with most things, you will get a much longer life out of your well pump with a little bit of care. Providing regular annual service to your pump will save you a lot of money in the long run.
